1. Is it "Ash" or "Ashley"?


Either is fine with me! I went to school with a lot of Ashleys, so I grew up with a lot of nicknames -- gotta catch 'em all, you know!


2. When did you first start writing?


I started writing fanfic back in middle school! Soon, I found myself in writing competitions, and then finally with an agent. And now, hey, look at me! (Still writing fanfics, obviously.)


3. What is your favorite color?


Purple. It will forever be purple.


4. How did you get published?


Everyone's publishing journey is different! One person might be a break-out success, and another might have a long climb. To be honest, everyone's path to publication is different. There are a lot of writing resources to get you started, and then set off on your own path! Have fun -- writing is an adventure, Hobbit-style.


5. Can you help me get an agent/published?


No, sadly. There are so many hours in a day, and I gotta get writing on my next book! But Google is a good friend, trust me. It's where I learned everything. Go, young padawan, and learn.


6. Who is your agent?


The indomitable Holly Root of Root Literary!


7. Can I get an ARC of your upcoming book?


Possibly! But I don't have the power to give out ARCs. Sling an email over to the publisher of the novel of mine you want to read, and they can help from there!


8. Can I interview you for my blog?


Maybe! It depends on what events or deadlines I have going on at the time. But it never hurts to ask! Just pop on over to my Contact page!


9. So, what do you do when you're not writing?


I game a lot! I used to live-stream on Twitch, but I haven't found the time recently. I might take it up again, though. Who knows! I also run, if you like graphic design and book quotes!


10. Do you have any other books coming out?


Yes! HEART OF IRON, my space pirate rip-your-heart-out-and-watch-you-bleed-out Anastasia retelling comes out from Balzer + Bray in Winter 2018!
